VIDEO: Seen a Street Kid Selling India Flags? You’ll Never See That Kid in the Same Way Again.

This is a glimpse into the life of a kid selling flags on the streets and at the signals. Will these flags help him fight hunger and survive? What will he do after the day is over? Find out here. 

It’s Independence Day or Republic Day and we are all buying India flags. There is that little kid, with barely a scrap of clothing and bones sticking out, standing outside your car window, waving the flag at you.

With a heart filled with patriotic fervour, you lower the window and buy what he’s selling, feeling magnanimous about loving your country so much and also being a selfless champion of the poor.
